Toxic Entrepreneurship with Casey Jourdan

entrepreneurship Mar 22, 2021
 

I am excited to share today’s guest, Casey Jourdan with you.  Casey is a business strategist and mentor who works with early-stage, primarily female entrepreneurs. 

Casey rejected the traditional life of the 9-5 so-called secure career path with benefits.  This is not just because of the effects of the impact to her brain from having been blown up in Iraq while she was serving in the military, but also as a result of some residual PTSD, but because of her feelings...

The Confidence Dilemma

confidence Mar 17, 2021

The topic of gender and what it means to be male, female, or one of the more recent editions to the gender identity spectrum is gaining a lot of attention in recent years.  Much of our gender identity is shaped by cultural expectations and if you go along with what your culture tells you is expected of someone of your gender, you receive social approval.  To the degree that you don't conform to these norms,  you may be the target of everything from bullying and alienation to...

Do The Thing

adhd mastery Mar 12, 2021
 

I have been planning to write a book for at least twenty years. I would tell myself one day, I'm going to write a book, maybe even a whole series of books. Other people would hear me speaking passionately about my area of expertise and urge me to write a book and I would always say it's on the list (as in The Bucket List.) About ten years ago, I started buying and reading books by writers, for writers, about writing. I really enjoyed them and they inspired me. I signed up for an...

It's About Time

adhd mastery Mar 10, 2021

One of the things about having ADHD that is pretty stereotypical is having a poor sense of time awareness. One of my ADHD mentors, Eric Tivers of ADHD Rewired calls it Time Blindness. That's a pretty accurate description, at least in my life. I actually have met a few folks with ADHD who are always early for any scheduled event, but they are in the minority. The rest of us are perpetually late, at least until we finally decide that it's about time we were on time. I prefer to call it Time...

Today I am joined by Sarah Mikutel, an American expat who has been living permanently in Europe for over a decade. Sarah is an inspiration to me, not only because she had the drive and the courage to choose a life of freedom, something many driven women dream about, but because she is also on the path of continuous personal evolution.  

Sarah is a transformational coach, consultant, and podcaster, I love the way Sarah follows her curiosity, shares what she learns, and makes...

You Talk to Yourself

brain stuff Mar 02, 2021

There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who talk to themselves out loud and those who talk to themselves in their heads. I remember the first time I heard someone talking to themselves out loud. I was a teenager and it was at the grocery store. I thought the woman was talking to me, so I asked her to repeat herself. She wasn't even aware that she was doing it, so she was as confused as I was and didn't answer me. After noticing it that first time, I started paying attention whenever...

Don't be an Advice ATM

boundaries Mar 01, 2021
 

Are you someone who has always been asked for advice? In this week’s solo episode, I tackled the issue of setting boundaries around when to actually give it. Many people will ask for your advice but they do not really need it, they just need someone to listen to them, so you can be empathic and let them know you want to support them, and that’s it.  No need to give advice that you know they will never follow anyway.  

I used to dispense advice like an ATM,...

Boundaries

boundaries Feb 23, 2021

Have you ever noticed how much difficulty most people have with setting boundaries? And when I say boundaries, I am talking about physical, emotional, sexual, financial, energetic, and time boundaries. Maybe I am taking the whole subject a little too far, but I think boundaries are everything, especially when it comes to personal freedom and living life on your terms. Even if you don't consider yourself much of a people pleaser, you probably give others more of your time, energy, effort, and...

Unnecessary Suffering

blog boundaries Feb 16, 2021

So much of human behavior is tied to morality, even if we aren't a card-carrying member of any known religion. Be a good boy. Good girls don't. We want to do something because of the way it will make us feel. And we are shamed out of doing it with the threat of feeling the opposite. Manipulating the feels is big business. The music I grew up listening to had lyrics like "How can it be wrong when it feels so right?' and I heard plenty of marketing slogans like "If it feels good, do it.' No...
